Rumored for May.

Cyclops (Astonishing)
Emma Frost (Astonishing)
Corsair
Kid Omega
Monet
Chamber
Fang
The two I'm most interested in here would be Monet and Chamber but they would need to be their 90's Gen X looks.

Kid Omega never interested me and I guess I don't have an interest in building an Astonishing team.

Who's Fang?

A member of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. Most notable for the time Wolverine beat him up and stole his clothes during the early Claremont run.

2 Questions:

1. Do you think Fang with be packed 2 per case if he comes with a Wolverine head? He'd essentially be Wolverine who is always 2 per case...

2. What costume would Quire be in?

1. Yes, I assume so.

2. The new superhero look. No tooling costs. That said, I'm hoping for his schoolboy duds.

I mean artistic license and all. I get it. The guides list him as 7' tall. I've always thought of him as human and not a monster.

Always thought Kid Omega was a better villain than hero. He always struck me as a Riddler-style "I'm smarter and better than all of you," sort of sociopath, which is why I've never liked him as a character. I think it was somewhat interesting in that he was going to steal away a new generation of "New Mutants" from Xavier like Cable did, and guide them to his own ends, but that never played out to completion. It's a shame they don't give him an angle to pursue like William Stryker or Exodus had at different points, as the "psychic shotgun" etc. seems like an under-utilization in terms of what the character could amount to.

Likely will sell him after I get the BAF part, unless the body's easily useful for customs.

I feel like we're going to get a lot of Puma reuse in terms of making Fang, as he seems more lanky than Wolverine and given that Wolverine is a different sort of body type. So if it's meant to be more of a Wolverine figure they'll likely go with that body I'd imagine.

He's listed as 5'4", so it's definitely a Wolverine body with added parts for Fang/Wolvie.

I still say they can make a perfect comic M'Baku using the top half of Beast and new legs/hands/head.


If Monet, Chamber and Kid Omega get the HoX costumes I'm screwed; I'll probably get the whole darn wave. :lol:

Hope the BAF is Starjammers/Astonishing related.

I'll still buy Quentin in his superhero look, but for his first figure it had damn well better be a "Magneto Was Right" schoolboy look.

Yes I'd vastly prefer his schoolboy look to the superhero costume.

As always, Piffy speaks the truth.
I'll be happy to get Q regardless of what shirt he's wearing, but I'd be beyond pumped to get him in the Magneto Was Right shirt.

But, really, he's got so many good shirts to choose from, so if they want to include a few torsos so we can pick our favorite, well, why not?

My only hope for the schoolboy look is the ItSV Miles. He’d probably be a little slight, but the new legs in the shorts and torso may bulk him up a little.

We really need new teen bases.

Quentin in a school uniform would definitely be my preferred choice, but the dude looks different every other issue. It's not like he's got one definitive look that would be blatantly obvious to choose.

Yeah, gotta be the "Magneto was Right" shirt. I'd say put him the black jacket and black shorts, but I'm not too particular.

The "Holiday in Genosha" tagline is genius.
